Man Recipe - Beer Can Chicken


  • 1 whole chicken
  • 2 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper 
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 3 tablespoons BBQ rub or you choice of rub
  • 1 can of premium beer (don't use the cheap stuff)


  1.  Pre-heat the grill to medium-high
  2. Take out the internals and dispose. Rinse chicken thuroughly, and pat dry. Rub chicken lightly with oil then rub inside and out with salt, pepper and dry rub. Set aside. 
  3. Open beer can and drink about half the beer. Place beer can in a baking pan. Put the bird on the can. Place pan in the center of the cooking grate, balancing the bird like a tripod with the two legs and can.
  4. Cook with indirect heat and the grill cover on, for approximately 1.5 hours or until the internal temperature registers 165 degrees in the breast area and 180 degrees in the thigh, or until the thigh juice runs clear. 
  5. Remove from grill and let rest for 10 minutes before carving. 
  6. Enjoy
